Best Hotels in Analipsi, Crete

Analipsi is a small town 20 km from Heraklion and the famous seaside resort of Hersonissos, so often in the address designations you can find “Analipsi Hersonissos”. It can not even be called a city, but a small Cretan village, and the opening of the tourism industry here began later than the rest of the resorts of Crete.
